Company Bohdan (Рота Богдан) was established on the order of Ministry of Internal Affairs in June 2014 in Khmelnytskyi region. Unlike most of the volunteer units serving under the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Bohdan company was formed from police officers, which most of them were serving in local detachment of Berkut. Oleg Krakowski, the commander of Bohdan Company, never hid the fact they are ex-Berkut officers. In fact, he criticized the order to disband Berkut and blamed current situation in the east on that. They worked together with volunteers of Khelmytsky self-defense and some members joined the Bohdan company later.
